Putin briefed on military options in Ukraine – Moscow
Russia’s top military experts have presented Russian President Vladimir Putin with possible plans of action in case tensions around Ukraine spiral into conflict, Moscow has disclosed as tensions flare between the two states.
Speaking as part of an interview on Thursday with media outlet RTVI, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that “war specialists are constantly offering options to the president in the event that conditions deteriorate.”
The diplomat remarked that “this is a difficult subject,” and that it should be handled with care in the public space because it in itself is “a rocking of the situation.” He also said that it is vital to “give diplomacy a chance.”
Considering this latest news, I will recommend that if you’re interested in Ukrainian background, I will recommend my recent topic https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/the-minsk-protocols-and-the-constitution-of-ukraine-show-its-ukrainian-agression-after-the-us-backed-maidan-revolution/ .

I need a Ukraine for dummies thread. Why is the US involved? Why does the US want to provoke Russia? It seems incredibly stupid. What can the US possibly gain from it?

Like we saw in Kazakhstan, too many people are still trying to fight the Soviet Union – even though that was dissolved in 1991.
Obama and Biden thought they could get a military base in Ukraine on the Black Sea next to Russia, preferably in Crimea. Instead, they caused a civil war in Ukraine, and Crimea chose to return to Russia (Kruschchev gave Crimea to Ukraine in 1954) by a democratic referendum. Russia now thoroughly controls the Black Sea.
Biden can’t stand it – he’d rather destroy Ukraine by war.
And, of course, a war would help justify the huge US military budget and maybe prop up Biden’s horrible approval level, but I suspect another war of choice would just drop his approval level even further.

Thanks @jbnw . I agree that this would not help his approval rating. I don’t think the average American wants any more war.

except in rare cases like Pearl Harbor and 9/11. And even with 9/11, that support was lost when we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, rather than Saudia Arabia which organized 9/11 . I remember marching in San Francisco (along with a few others here 🙂 ) against a war for oil.

So did I in my state, but don’t underestimate the propaganda
machine from the establishment and the M$M. So, it becomes
clear now that Russia will act in some form or another. May be
they don’t want the West to have enough time to prepare while
they are ready. We’ll see. I am sure of one thing: Putin knows
what he is doing; and Russia is not anymore the poor and somewhat
insecure country it was in the nineties. The West started it and may
now get punished for that. I just hope that the Ukrainians will not
suffer the most. Let’s put Ms. V. Nuland right on the frontlines.

14,000 Ukrainians have already died. I suspect that the Russian Army would be welcomed in much of eastern Ukraine (and that, of course, is a guess!!) but those who started the civil war will likely not let this end without more bloodshed – and that includes the US under Joey’s continued misguided desire to own Ukraine.
